On Aug. 21 the Civic Memorial boys' soccer program played host to its first ever alumni game.
Approximately 60 former Eagles suited up for the inaugural event at the Bethalto Sports Complex. Former head coach Don Woelfel was on hand to watch and critique the play. Woelfel led the CM booters from 1977-2012, winning more than 300 games at the helm. He started the program during the 1977 season.
The Eagles are looking for a resurgence under second-year coach Derek Jarman. They are 4-0 in 2016 and fresh off a Metro Cup Tournament championship on Saturday when they beat Mississippi Valley Conference rival Mascoutah for the crown.
CM is back in action at 5:15 p.m. tonight at the Bethalto Sports Complex vs. Staunton.
